International Rugby Union The Rugby Championship Betting Odds, Tips & Special Offers

New Zealand v Australia Rugby Union Betting Tips & Predictions (Saturday 03:35 BST)

New Zealand will be looking to beat Australia for the second week in succession when they lock horns on Saturday.

The All Blacks defeated the Wallabies 38-7 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to finish top of The Rugby Championship standings following a short campaign due to the World Cup.

This might not be a Rugby Championship game, but it is for the Bledisloe Cup and the All Blacks will be looking to pile more misery on the Aussies.  

The All Blacks are on home soil at the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin and head coach Ian Foster has opted to make a whole host of changes.

Brodie Retallick, Ardie Savea and Will Jordan are the only players retaining their places from last weekend.

Flanker Samipeni Finau and winger Shaun Stevenson will make their debuts from kick-off, while Dallas McLeod has been named on the bench.

Australia will be keen to avenge that embarrassing defeat last weekend. Pone Fa’amausili has been named in the front row in place of the injured Alan Alaalatoa.

Tom Hooper will wear the number six jersey with Fraser McReight taking the number seven shirt. Nic White and Quade Cooper are both on the bench.

Even with a lot of players missing, I am still backing the All Blacks to beat their old enemy by 13+ points.
